The four suspects, identified as Kojo Siah (also known as Mozey), Emmanuel Mensah (also known as Kofi Asamoah), Maxwell Cudjoe, and Agyabu Haruna Dissawu, were taken into custody on March 28, 2023, for their suspected involvement in the attack on police personnel in Axim, in the Western Region.

The arrest took place approximately three weeks after the incident.

According to the police, on March 9, 2023, the Axim Divisional Police patrol team was assaulted by a gang that took possession of a Service rifle magazine as well as mobile phones belonging to the officers.

Following an intelligence operation that lasted approximately three weeks, the suspects were arrested.

In a statement issued by the Public Affairs Directorate of the police on Sunday, April 2, 2023, it was revealed that during a search of the home of the prime suspect, Kwame Ato Asare Ani, who is still at large, three pump-action shotguns were discovered.

Additionally, one pump-action shotgun, two machetes, and eight BB rifle cartridges were retrieved from the suspect’s unregistered Honda vehicle.

Two live BB cartridges and an unregistered motorbike were among the other items taken from the suspect.

The police stated that while the investigation into the remaining suspects was ongoing on April 1, 2023, they were alerted to video footage depicting members of the Axim Patrol team pleading with the gang while the gang accused the police officers of extortion.

The police have referred the allegation of extortion against the officers to the Police Professional Standards Bureau (PPSP) for investigation.
